About Me

My photo
I have been digiscoping for around 18 years now and through persistence and good equipment I am getting great results. I use a Swarovski 80hd spotting scope and a Sony RX100 camera which has just replaced my old faithful Nikon P5100. The majority of my bird watching takes place in County Durham in England which has a variety of different habitats from coast to moors. Digiscoping is great because it allows me to get good photos without disturbing birds. VIEW THE LATEST PHOTOBOOK AT THE BOTTOM OF THIS PAGE

Bollihope - Ouzels and Pipits

Had an early trip up to Bollihope in search of more Ring Ouzels and found 2 new sites (for me) where they were and both pairs had young ones, however never got good photos of either of them. However at one of the sites there was a few Tree Pipits (and Meadow Pipits) around, and I did mange to get good photos of them.
Also I finally got a decent picture of a Wren. It seems mad that I have struggled to get a good photo of these but it has just been a bit of a bogey bird.
Down at Deepdale Beck at Barnard Castle, I found a young Dipper in its usual breeding area on the river and it posed obligingly. I think it was rather sleepy and it wasn't dipping like a dipper dips.

  1. Hi Colin,

    Wrens are not easy to photograph!

    Ironically I managed to get my first decent Wren shot last Saturday.

    They're always there, but don't often hang around!!

    Regards,

    Danny.
